If I remember correctly (and it's been a while)Dimeadozen forces you to maintain a share ratio about 0.25. Meaning you have uploaded at least 25% of the total amount you've downloaded in term in bytes of data. This ratio is tracked based on your torrent activity on the site itself, so you can't change it. Your best bet is to keep seeding the files you've downloaded, until you've uploaded at least 25% of the file. If you've already stopped them, reopen a few and hope a leacher comes along.

That makes sense. If nobody leaches the files I'm seeding, does that mean I won't be able to download any more from Dime?

Unfortunately, yes you're at the mercy of the leeches until your ratio tops 0.25

sometimes having active leechers for your files can be hit or miss. in many cases if you are patient and leave them open leechers will come along. try to keep up your ratio up from the beginning as it gets harder to gain ground the more you download. good luck!!
